Cartoon Network has picked up 26 episodes of the new MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD animated series to debut on the network in late 2009. MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD is an action-packed show featuring super-stylized versions of its most popular characters including Captain America, Silver Surfer, Hulk, Wolverine and Iron Man.
When the greatest heroes on the planet unite to face the world's greatest villains, you get the biggest, most family-friendly superhero team-up in TV history: Super Hero Squad. It's no small job protecting Super Hero City from VillainVille's infamous criminals, but Iron Man, Wolverine, the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, Thor and the Falcon are always up for the job.
Shouting "Hero Up!" as they rush into battle, the Squad must keep Dr. Doom's allies from gathering pieces of the Infinity Sword. Otherwise, Doom will use the Sword to rule the universe. Luckily, the city is filled with Marvel superhero guest-stars to help out in a pinch. These brave heroes totally deliver the action -- but with plenty of humor on the side.
Marvel has attracted some superstar talent to play the roles of the dynamic heroes and villains of MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD including: Tom Kenny (SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS), Charlie Adler (TRANSFORMERS, LOONATICS UNLEASHED), Steve Blum (WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN, HULK VS.) and Grey DeLisle (THE FAIRLY ODDPARENTS and THE REPLACEMENTS).
Marvel has also secured some superstar talent to play the guest-stars of MARVEL SUPER HERO SQUAD including: Wayne Knight (SEINFELD), LeVar Burton (READING RAINBOW, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION), Michelle Trachtenberg (GOSSIP GIRL, BUFFY), Greg Grunberg (HEROES), Lena Headey (TERMINATOR: SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, 300), Adrian Pasdar (HEROES), Tricia Helfer (BATTLESTAR GALATICA), Jennifer Morrison (HOUSE), Tamera Mowry (TWITCHES and SISTER, SISTER), Robert Englund (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films) and Stan Lee as the Mayor of Super Hero City.
